Doctorate by the University of Zaragoza, his thesis Republican latin epigraphy in Hispania, published in 2008, has been awarded by the Association Internationale d'Epigraphie Grecque et Latine (AIEGL). This award recognized the enormous task that this investigator has done by collecting and studying all  peninsular inscriptions previous to Cesar, a task that until now no one had dared to undertake.
